Current Grade 9 CCSD Students- For Grade 10 in September 2020
All current grade 9 CCSD students will be supported through the registration process by their school guidance counsellor. Registration forms will be distributed and collected at their school in February. Please work with your current jr high school to make sure you are adhering to timelines for registration.
Current CCSD High School Students
Students currently registered at another Calgary Catholic High School but desiring a transfer to Bishop Carroll need to follow these steps:
1. Bishop Carroll is a school of choice and is designed with a self-directed approach to learning. Students and families should familiarize themselves with our school and program prior to considering transferring to Bishop Carroll High School.
2. After you have researched our school and decided it is a good fit for your learning style, please contact our school for more information and determination of your acceptance.
3. Once you have been accepted to Bishop Carroll, students will need to let their current CCSD high school their intent to transfer and we will support them with that as well. Your current high school will need to send a transfer request form to Bishop Carroll to formalize and finalize the transfer process.
Students Not Currently Registered with CCSD
Registration for the 2020-2021 school year will open in March 2020 (This is a time change from a previous post). Please check back at that time for the registration form. The registration form for the 2020-2021 School year will be posted here once it is available. Once our numbers from CCSD junior high schools are finalized, we will notify you if we have room and resources to accept your child for the 2020/2021 school year.
The Calgary Catholic School District has designated boundaries for all schools. CCSD uses boundaries strategically to ensure optimal student populations that support viable programming across the district. It is the expectation that students will attend their designated school. Please be aware that school attendance boundaries can and do change to accommodate factors including changing demographic information, the opening or closing of a school, to relieve overcrowding in schools, etc.
Bishop Carroll High School is a program of choice school therefore, we do not have any designated boundaries within the Calgary Catholic School District.
Understanding School Attendance Areas
We encourage parents and guardians who are considering a move to a new residence to review the designated attendance area for Catholic Schools in that community. All Calgary Catholic schools have attendance areas which identify the schools in each community where students are eligible to register. Students are expected to attend the designated school for their community unless they decide to register at a program of choice school such as French Immersion, or Fine Arts. For a list of programs, please click here. For these schools there are mandatory transportation costs based on residence of the family attending.
